Mostafa Zamanian is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pathobiological Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Zamanian earned his doctorate in Neuroscience at Iowa State University and trained as a postdoctoral fellow at McGill University and Northwestern University.

Dr. Zamanian’s research program is primarily focused on neglected infectious diseases that afflict humans and animals. The goal of his research is to identify new targets and strategies for parasite treatment and control, as well as to connect this effort to a better understanding of basic parasite receptor biology and the molecular interactions that occur between helminths and their vertebrate hosts and vectors. His laboratory uses a mixture of molecular, computational, and field work approaches to advance the study of these pathogens in a global health context.
